Why isn't there a magic thornmail, an AD carry can be beaten easily by Thornmail, but for magic all you get is MR and HP. An item that returns magical damage taken 30% as physical damage.

That would make veigar and other AP nukes completely worthless. maybe something along the lines of 5% or 10%

You can search the key word "Thornmail" & "Magic" in the forum and find out that this has been raised as well as banned for numerous times. I would say the most important reason is that you can freely choose your targets using standard attack, but not for many abilities. For example, it is hilarious to see that whenever Singed toggle his poison, the "Magic Thronmail" carriers can damage Singed just by inhaling the purple fume.

You do realize that it's not "physical damage" reflected but "standard attacks" reflected right? The suggestion of a magic reflector would be unbalanced because EVERY CHAMPION has 4 skills, at least one of them does magic damage so even if they got it to not proc on Physical skills, it would still beat the hell out of all the caster champions and hurt everyone else soon as it's purchased.

Broken idea is broken, can't be fixed, won't be made.

Autoattacks can hold off on attacking Thornmail users or use lifesteal to counter it's damage.

Casters, against such a mechanic...less so. Such an item could be useless due to small statistical degree, or encourage casters to never touch you ever unless either they hate living or are intentionally feeding.

You're not happy with QSS? Banshee's Veil? Guardian Angel? Is there a problem? And yeah, that would stop casters from doing almost ANYTHING unless it was 1% reflect which is... meh. And it would make Abbysal Scepter a must-get (MR+AP).
